Classical music is inaccessible and difficult.
Its surprising how many people still believe the above statement to be true, so this new series is not only welcome, its also very necessary.
Each CD in the series features the orchestral music of a specific composer, with a selection of his ‘greatest hits’ played by top quality performers.
It will give you a good flavour of the composer’s style, but you won’t find any nasty surprises... all the music is instantly accessible and appealing.
